Bringing back Memories: What I remember from the former French Mining Company of Lavrion Εκτύπωση E-mail

The French Mining Company of Lavrion, one of the most important industries of our country began operating in 1875 and ceased all operations in 1989. The restored facilities of the Company, are today one of the most important landmarks of industrial archaeology in Greece and worldwide. Even more important is the fact that some of the people who worked for the Company are still today live sources of research, for the synthesis of history of the Modern Metallurgy of Lavreotiki.

recallThe Handicraft – Industrial Educational Museum, knowing that history is written through facts, has designed an Educational Program named "Bringing back memories: What I remember from the former French Mining Company of Lavrion". In this Program the participants, through the historian's method, have the ability to collect information about the French Mining Company of Lavrion, utilizing facts not only from the facilities and the Museum's collections but also from the former employees of the Company that function as live sources.

The former employees share with the participants their memories from their time working  at the Company while the facilities, although non-functioning today, come to life giving a body to their recollections.  The participants have a unique opportunity to take part  in a dialogue with the protagonists of history, conducting an interview while combining the elements they discover in the surrounding space.
